True to its name, Mandarina Bavaria hops are full of sweet orange citrus flavor invoking tangerines, mandarin oranges and clementines. Aromatic with a modest bitterness, Mandarina Bavaria hops can stand on their own in a beer, or interject strong orange citrus notes in hop blends.
The German Mandarina Bavaria hop burst onto the scene in 2012 from The Hop Research Center in Hüll Germany (along with sister varietals Hüll Melon, Polaris and Hallertau Blanc). Bred from American Cascade and traditional Hüll hops, Madarina Bavaria hops retain much of the Cascade citrus-notes but without the large hits of pine the American hop is known for. Instead Mandarina Bavaria hops have underlying herbal notes and light spice akin to Hallertau or Styrian Golding hops, but don't be mistaken; this hop leads with a dominant, unfading sweet citrus that is irresistible.
Released in 2012 from The Hop Research Center in Hüll Germany (along with sister varietals Hüll Melon, Polaris and Hallertau Blanc). Mandarina Bavaria is bred from US Cascade hops and traditional Hüll varietals.
Mandarina Bavaria hop cones are medium, dark green, tightly knit and dense. Available primarily in pellet form this is a multi-use hop with moderate bitterness and intense sweet orange citrus flavors.
